‘Resisting Hate’ Rally, Vigil Planned in Medford

Several Medford organizations have joined together to offer events in the name of peace and community.

Mayor Stephanie M. Burke’s office and the city’s Office of Diversity are co-sponsoring two events along with Medford’s Interfaith Clergy Association, SafeMedford, Medford Community Coalition, Indivisible Mystic Valley with support from the NAACP, and Tufts Interfaith Chaplaincy.

A rally is taking place on Thursday, August 17 at the Condon Shell on Route 16. The “city-wide rally to resist hate” begins with sign-making at 7 pm while the rally will begin at 7:30 pm.

The vigil is taking place on Sunday, August 20 at 7 pm at Grace Episcopal Church in Medford Square. The event will recognize the victims of the violence in Charlottesville, VA.

Both events are free and open to the public.
